Pojoaque Elks Athlete Of The Week

The Valley Daily Post, in cooperation with Pojoaque Athletics and our sponsor, Henry Valencia Inc., is proud to presents the Pojoaque Elks Athlete of the Week.

This week, in honor of their winning District Championship and their advancing to the State Championship (to be held this weekend), the Pojoaque Valley High School Boys Varsity Cross Country Team has been named as the Henry Valencia Elks Athlete of the Week.

The Valley Daily Post the following statement from Kevin Garcia, the Pojoaque Valley School District Athletic Director, talking about why the entire Boys Team deserves this recognition:

The Pojoaque Valley High School boys cross country team has been consistently at or near the top of each meet they competed in.  They have exhibited superior discipline and mental toughness throughout the season.  Coach Lockridge and his staff have not let them become complacent.  The coaching staff challenges each member of the team to do better than they did the previous day.  The team has met the challenges and looks forward to bringing home a State trophy!
